What is an all-in-one pond pump?
All-in-one pond pumps are combined pump and filter systems, the pumps move water via a fountain or waterfall and the internal filter cleans the water, kills green water and traps debris. The simplicity of installation is why these pumps have proved so successful, they're ideal for first-time pond builders and keepers.
Why should I buy an all-in-one pond pump?
If you find the idea of setting up your own watercourse quite daunting, an all-in-one pump could be a good choice. By combining all of the functionality of a pond pump with a filter and a fountain pump, this model ensures that all you have to do is wire your pump up to a mains power supply and you've got everything you need ready to go in one place.
What are the main types of all-in-one pond pumps?
Most all-in-one pond pumps are the same with a pump and filter in the bottom and a long vertical shaft up to a fountainhead. However, some of our kits do include extra features like built-in lighting, multiple fountainheads and even UV clarifiers to create crystal-clear pond water.
What features should you look out for when buying an all-in-one pond pump?
It's important to choose the right size of all-in-one pond pump for your pond and watercourse. As these all-in-one pond pumps have a built-in fountain, you don't need to consider the output of the pump unless you're considering removing the fountain and sending your water up a waterfall. However, it's still important to check that the pump you're buying will move, filter and aerate enough water to meet the needs of your pond (if you're unsure you can find help selecting the right pump using our Pond Volume Calculator).
What accessories should I buy with an all-in-one pond pump?
There are no accessories you need to buy with an all-in-one pond pump. Everything you need is in the pump, however, to comply with UK electrical legislation, pond appliances can't be supplied with a fitted plug, so you'll need to purchase one separately or wire it into an outdoor plug socket. If you're unsure of how to wire in your pond pump we advise consulting a professional electrician or pond keeper.
